Catholic UC students to meet in Berkeley

Hundreds of students from the nine University of California campuses that serve undergraduates are expected to converge on Berkeley from Jan. 17 to 20 for the University Catholic Conference of California.

The organization, which seeks to unite university students across California through the universal Catholic faith, will host events at International House and Newman Hall Holy Spirit Parish in Berkeley, as well as the Cathedral of Christ the Light in Oakland.

Students will arrive Friday evening, then settle in for two full days of events, including featured speakers Matt Weber, Mark Hart and Emily Wilson.

On Saturday evening, the students will come to the cathedral for a talk from Bishop Michael C. Barber, SJ.

Spiritual adviser to the group is Father Bill Edens, campus minister at Newman Hall Holy Spirit.

Students pay registration fees up to $100 for the event, and have been arranging housing with UC students and families. The conference, which spans the Martin Luther King holiday weekend, is supported by the Diocese of Oakland, the Diocese of San Jose and the Associated Students of the University of California.

Registration information is available at http://uccatholics.com.
